Summary

Initializes the buffered dithering of an image.

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
WinRT C#
C++
public void StartDithering( 
   RasterColor[] palette, 
   int colors 
) 
Public Sub StartDithering( _ 
   ByVal palette() As Leadtools.RasterColor, _ 
   ByVal colors As Integer _ 
)  
public void StartDithering(  
   Leadtools.RasterColor[] palette, 
   int colors 
) 
- (BOOL)startDithering:(nullable NSArray<LTRasterColor *> *)palette  
                colors:(NSUInteger)colors  
                 error:(NSError **)error 
             
public void startDithering( 
  RasterColor[] palette,  
  int colors 
) 
             
 function Leadtools.RasterImage.StartDithering(  
   palette , 
   colors  
) 
public: 
void StartDithering(  
   Leadtools.array<RasterColor>^ palette, 
   int colors 
)  

Parameters

palette
The palette this uses for dithering. You can specify your own palette, or use a null reference for LEAD's fixed palette.

colors
Number of colors used in the palette. If the palette contains more colors, only the first colors colors are used. Valid values are 2 to 256.

Remarks

The following flow chart shows how the methods relate to each other:

The following properties from the RasterImage are used to control the dithering operation:

This method does not support signed images.

Example

This example dithers each line in one image and writes it to another image.
